On our third week in Manipal, we had the opportunity to attend a community health clinic design for second year BSc students. The professors assigned two different families to each student; within the next few weeks, the students have to interview patients, gather both subjective and objective data, and then create a plan of care. We tagged along with some of the students, and gathered some information for our scholarly projects. Leah Rubin RN-NP student ’14 and Kristen Palleo RN-NP student 14′ had the opportunity to interview a pregnant nurse and gather information about pre-natal care. Diane Hazel RN-NP student 14′ had the opportunity to interview and gather data on two children and ask questions about vaccination routines and daily food intake. I had the opportunity to interview adults with hypertension (HTN) and diabetes. I took blood pressures and also concentrated on diabetes and HTN education and medication. Here are some of the pictures from our Community health days in Malpe.
We were also able to attend a morbidity clinic. Leah Rubin RN-NP student 14′ posted a blog on this day, but I wanted to share some of my pictures. Here we have IHP students in action!
We all have had an unforgettable experience. I have no words to describe how blessed and lucky I feel to be here. I hope you all are enjoying our blog.
Cheers from Manipal, India.
